February is Black History Month so here at Swing'n'Country we're celebrating the many contributions African-American musicians have made to country music.  Hear Leadbelly's early country blues, Chuck Berry's rockabilly sounds, and Stoney Edwards' 1970's hit "She's My Rock".  Plus lots of Western Swing to get your Saturday morning off to a swing'n start.
